Should I Paint Or Floor First?

 Should I Paint Or Floor First?

Installing new flooring and repainting a room are tasks that are often done in conjunction with each other. People tend to say you should paint before you re-floor a room, but you can paint either before or after new flooring is installed. However, when the two projects are done together, painting should typically be done last.

If you paint first, there are a couple of probable scenarios to think about. One likely possibility is that the flooring installer could nick or scratch the fresh paint and baseboard trim. Another possible occurrence of painting first is that the new flooring could be thinner than the old, and the paint then would not be deep enough for the new flooring.

If you paint after the new flooring is put in, the most likely problem would be paint being spilled or dripped on the new floor. However, this should not be an issue if proper set-up techniques are taken, and if the paint is applied by a professional contractor.

If you are doing the projects yourself, it may be wise to paint first, if you don’t have the proper materials to cover the furniture and floor. But if you are hiring professional contractors for these projects, I would suggest laying the flooring before painting.

The aforementioned problems shouldn’t be an issue if you hire professional contractors for the jobs. Although, to ensure a satisfactory job, be sure to carefully consider who you choose to work with to make sure they have a dependable, well-trained team.
